How cold before dogs come in the house
Our two dogs are outside dogs. The female lab/boxer can't be bribed to come in the house. The male mastiff(?) mix(?) will come in but won't stay without her. Neither one will go in a dog house. They do have shelter from wind and rain. If I forcibly bring the female in the house it seems like it traumatizes her. But I hate for them to be outside on these cold nights. It was in the mid to high 20's last night. It rarely gets down to the low 20's or below. I worried about them last night. When they were young they loved staying in the house. Their first year they spent every cold night inside. Now they prefer the back porch.
How cold before I make them stay in the house.
Should I make them stay in the house on cold nights.
